Treason For Profit

Paraphrasing Mueller, Part One: "Department of Justice policies would not allow me to indict the president even though there's a high probability that Mr. Trump is guilty of several crimes. It's now time for Congress to do its job and begin the investigation that can lead to impeachment. Thank you. Goodbye."

Mitch McConnell, moments later: "Do our job? BWAHHHH-hahahahahahahahahahaha! Good luck with that, suckers."


Paraphrasing Mueller, Part Two: "I can't say the president is guilty of crimes as that requires a trial, and you can't put the president on trial for criminal offenses while he's in office. Catch 22. However, Congress can use the information I've accumulated to accuse the president of other wrong-doing that can lead to impeachment."


The Trump investigation is "complete" in the same way that Barr drilling a bullet through the back of Mueller's head would also make the investigation "complete".


Why is the Dow tanking again today? It may not be t-Rump's Chinese tariffs... it's possibly worse.

Kurt Eichenwald says the market's down because a recent statement from the Chinese government says that if Herr Furor keeps playing "I'm A Big Boy, Mommy!" with the tariffs they'll soon restrict exports of rare earth metals to the U.S.

This will KILL the U.S. technology industry.

Could this be more ominous? Yes. What if the people who advise the Giant Orange Man-Baby (Putin) have planned this all along?

But her emails.


I know this is a bit premature, and a bit starry-eyed, but suppose Warren/Beto are the 2020 Democratic ticket. Now imagine the voter enthusiasm if Warren announces her cabinet will be Harris, Buttigieg, Franken, Swallwell, Castro, etc. (I'm leaving out basically all the sitting Dem Senators as we need all of them we can get. And we ALL know Franken got screwed.)

This is a GOOD bunch of people.

I'm sure by the end of the campaign process the American people will come to know and appreciate this outstanding group of Democrats running for the top office. All the Democrats would have to do is compare this proposed cabinet with the bottom-of-the-barrel dogmeat that t-Rump employs. No contest.

BTW, I'm liking Warren for Prez because she's whip-smart, has policies for everything, and can play t-Rump like a fiddle. Beto has the advantage of Texas's electoral votes. Ya gotta like that.

Yes, I left out Biden. Sorry, I'm not a fan, and I'm pretty sure he won't be interested in a cabinet position, altohugh he'd make a fun Secretary fo State.


(Hate to do this to you, but....)
